Parents impatiently wait for first words and first steps of their babies. After the birth of the baby, these are the things parents most look up to, What to do to get a baby talking?
The initial words of the baby, those memories, and reminiscences, are remembered perfectly for the rest of the lives.
Children often concentrate on every single thing the adults do and say, believe it or not, they are really keen observers. So, try to use polite and humble language with your baby to develop good speech skills.
The question here arises that how to actually get your baby to talk?
Well, it’s quite simple.
Here are five simple tips which will highly encourage your child to talk, pronounce different words and learn a new language. Have a look.
1. Narrate Every Little Thing:
As, we’ve already mentioned that kids especially the ones who are on the urge to learn, have strong cognitive skills and sharp memory which is why they instantly learn whatever you say to them.
Make sure the language you use in front of your children is appropriate.
Try to tell stories as much as possible.
Children tend to listen really carefully and learn everything you speak.
This is why speech therapists also recommend parents to narrate everything to improve speech of the child.
2. Listen to Your Child:
According to different researchers letting your baby talk can highly improve his/her speaking abilities. Encouraging a child rather than suppressing his/her capabilities is a positive factor and makes it easier for the child to learn to speak.
Rather than scolding your child, try to support him/her to say what he/she actually wants.
Even if your baby is saying something wrong, don’t be harsh on him/her, give proper guidance and make sure he/she doesn’t do it again.
Scolding and harsh treatment can lead to under-confidence and anxious behavior.
Other than this, children are scared to express their feelings later in life.
3. Avoid Baby Talk:
Baby talk can have a little negative impact on the speech.
Mimicking and talking like children makes the child think that whatever he/she is saying is correct, which obviously results in the wrong pronunciation of the words.
Try not to encourage your child to speak words wrong.
Baby talk can have an impact on the language and verbal skills to a really great extent, so try using proper words and pronunciation rather than impersonating and baby talking.
4. Use Colorful and Animated Things:
Using lots of tunes and facial illustration when you are talking about the baby.
Utilize variations in volume and try to use different tones and multilingual audios, so that they can learn multiple languages at a time.
Use your hands and gestures. This makes you even more intriguing than you already are.
But when you generate attention around the action of chatting, you get your baby to attention for longer spans of time which will give your kid, even more, chance to learn.
5. Reduce Screen Time.
TV and movies do not teach the language.
Those things can clarify concepts, teach letters, or shades, or counting, or some new terminology but they are not good for children who are trying to learn to speak. Displays are not collaborative.
You yourself are collaborating, similarly the brothers and sisters, grandparents, friendly neighbors, other moms and that guy who makes funny faces at the check-out counter, all our good for developing language skills.
These are the things in your baby’s world that teach.
The displays like TV’s and movies are good when the child is a little elder and you need a distraction for a few minutes.
These are the ways to encourage your child and teach him/her how to speak, learn and develop new vocabulary.
